Swallow

Swallow-2
"SWAN" 44"x42" by Nina Benedetto © 2010


There are many things in life that we have to "swallow" for one reason or another. When we swallow something "hook, line and sinker," we believe it is true without doubt- no  facts needed! It is a circular proof - I believe it because "I know" it is true and it is true because I believe it. In this case, the source (of the fishing line) is unknown and the bait is a creature whose only "sense" is touch.

The swallow has to feed the hungry babies and the "red herring" is being baited, at the same time as it is being bait. They both "frozen in action " eye us in profile as if they know they are being observed. The viewer is caught!
